It's been the best experience being part of the Kickstarter community over the past four years. The platform it provides for small start-ups is an innovative development that has leveled the playing field for designers around the globe. Kickstarter gives designers the opportunity to put their creative products into production that otherwise may have remained drawings in a sketchbook. We've collected some of our favorite projects that are campaigning this month, and be sure to check out our own Wally Micro that launched on Kickstarter a few weeks ago!
